Black history month

Thursday 19 February 2004

Out of the blue during a long car ride, our kindergartener asked if we knew the story of Rosa Parks. We said we wanted to hear it. He said,

Rosa Parks was riding on a bus. Martin Luther King got on the bus and wanted her seat. She wouldn’t give it to him, so she got arrested.

So close, yet so tragically far.

You mean that isn't what happened? And why didn't anybody mention the fact that Al Sharpton was driving the bus.
